I might have a bit of an obsession with margaritas. I don't know what it is about them and when made right you can't go wrong (yes, it is EASY to mess up a marg).
So today we bring you
a smoky and spicy margarita.
the Samogon margarita!
So, here's what we're working with.
(I prefer this Tres Agaves organic)
(it's considered a Russian moonshine)
At least one
So why am I making a margarita with a Russian moonshine?
The other weekend I was at the liquor store and they had a few tasting through the store (think Costco but all wine, beer, and liquor). They had this right by the check out and when I tried it I was overwhelmed by the delicious smoky flavor. I immediately had a flash back to a Jalapeno margarita I'd once had in D.C. and thought - this would be an amazing substitute for tequila in that cocktail.
So I made it happen. And now, I'm sharing it with you!
I personally made my cocktail with these measurements:
1.5 shots of Samogon
(I let the Samogon and the jalapenos marinate for about 20 minutes)
3/4 a shot of margarita mix
1/2 of a lime
(fresh lime juice, YUM!)
Shake, pour, enjoy.
Now, put those purses down & bottoms
